SOURCE: Frontloader W1712. Waterproof fault displaying

I've just had this fault on this model, Its caused by a leak of water into the tray at the bottom, which activates a sensor to shut the water in flow off and thus prevent a flood. The fix is as for a posting by halldor to a question about the w4146 - ie.
Turn off and unplug, drain by the filter plug, lean the machine forward - the water flows out the bottom, plug in and it should work.
You do need to establish the cause of the leak first. Mine was a draw cord on some trousers dangling out of the door, thus preventing a proper seal, the water dribbled down the front and into the tray. Miele stated it could only be fixed by their service mechanics - I'd have had to wait 10 days!

SOURCE: MIele waterproof system reacted

That means that there is a leak that passed throught the waterproof system, and the water protection system had reacted putting the machine on error mode, as the water can damage electric parts, and cause serious hazard.

Sometimes you can reset the error by unplugging power cord, however you should call immediately a technician, as using the appliance when there is a problem with the waterproof system, you can be seriously injured by electric shock.

Hi,

Sounds like you may have flooded the base of the unit and activated the float switch. Tip the unit forward slightly with a towel at the base and all the water will pour out. You should be right to run the unit after that and any other water inside will dry up. it won't rust as it is stainless steel inside.

You may just have over sudded the unit by using the wrong detergent or too much. After you have the unit running again test the unit with no detergent and see if you activate the waterproof system again. if you do then you will probably have a split hose inside the unit.

SOURCE: Miele W 1712 is giving

I just received this error message on my Miele W 1712 (Waterproof Fault). Prior to this I had an error message regarding the Drain outlet, so I opened the drain outlet and cleaned it. I think I might have opened it too quickly and therefore creating the (Waterproof Fault). The problem is that when you open the drain outlet too quickly the water runs into the bottom of the washing machine where some sensor lies and you get the (Waterproof Fault) error message on the display and not even turning off the machine will do anything to get rid of this annoying message.
1. Turn off the machine
2. Unplug it
3. Open the drain outlet and take out the plug.
4. Dry all the visible water with a cotton cloth.
5. Tilt the machine FORWARD and hold it until you see water gushing from underneath the machine.
6. Repeat this until you see no more water.
7. Plug the machine back inn.
8 VOILA no error message! I hope in your case :)

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

If you have already tried cleaning then it means that the drain pump needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I have a Miele W 2389. Message saying waterproof system has activated. Turn off stop ****. What does it mean?


Hi Dear. Seems like your machine had internal leak. Float switch has been activated. That triggers error message on the display. What you can do is: Tilt the machine 45 degree (Back or forward which ever easy for you) wait for leaked water come out underneath the machine. If water comes out of machine, it's a indication of one of the plastic component failed(it could be drain hose- tub to pin trap hose- may be inlet valve etc....) If there is no water coming out of machine, float switch may be malfunctioning. In that cases you need to contact Miele center to get help.Thanks.

How do I fix a Miele W 2653 Wasker.


Hi dear. You did not mention what fault code but regards rest of your information, I would say 3 factors play up with it.
1- Tacho generator or it's plug faulty on motor
2- Motor Carbon brushes worn out or
3- Power/control unit ELP151-KD faulty.
I can advised to contact your local Miele center to diagnose your machine.Thanks.

The buzzer sounds and the rinses indicator light flashes and the programme sequence display " - - - " appears in the display. This occurs at the end of all programmes just as it starts to spin.


Hi - I will tell you whats wrong with the machine, but you will need to get someone familiar with Miele equipment to fix it for you.

On this particular series - Rinse LED flashing means 3 - 4 things could be wrong with the washer.

Tacho - generator is faulty
Drive fault - electrical problem
Motor - has issues with starting
Blockage - drains - drive unit
Restrictions - of the drum turning.
Electronics - may be a component with an intermittent failure/decay.

It would be either one of the above or a combination of 1 or the other...

Miele w3725 front loader. message on screen "waterproof fault"


For our model Alemnesh's suggestions were spot-on. It's hard to believe that a machine with such a good reputation would (a) allow this fault to occur so easily and (b) not have its own manual provide explicit guidance as to how to fix it.
